A Well-Watered Grave...

A Well-Watered Grave...

 Sometimes forgotten old things bubble to the surface of your particular pool of time,

Most especially in this era of recorded everything.

An old TV show from over a decade ago,

From my zombie workaholic era,

I missed it working the graveyard shift.

The ghost of its two-season run haunted us this past month,

A glimpse into a time capsule from 2003,

One that died a premature death,

Despite its utter brilliance and highly poetic sitcom patina.

Georgia Lass may have been obliterated by a flying toilet from the cosmos at 18,

But was a badass soul-reaper and heart-stealer,

A stand-in for those we've lost in every decade of the last century.

I watered her grave when she smiled back at her headstone,

All dark humor and love that outlasts everything.

Author's Note:

A binge-watch of the 2003 sitcom "Dead Like Me" will stick with me for a very, very long time.
